weeks' trip to various places in the
northern part of the state. They

finest trips of its kind in the worm
Next they attempted the ascent of
Mt. Hood. Mrs. Taiilandier only
got as far up as Cloud Cap Inn,
but the professor and five others
made the summit. The profeshor
was much pleased with this climb
ing business. They paid a visit to
Long Beach, Wash. Altogether they
enjoyed a very busy two weekB.
Last Friday night David Hug
gins, who., was in town from the
southern part of the county had
the misfortune to have a horse die.
The animal was at Abbott's feed
stable when death occurred and
there it remained a considerable
portion of Saturday. The reason
for this is that the city has no
place to bury animals that die with
in its limits. Mr. Huggins had
quite a lot of trouble to find a place
to bury the carcass. In the past
Chief Lane has made several at
tempts to find a place suitable for
the purpose named, but without
avail. Two or three people enter
ed into a sort of contract, but at
the very last they .wauld go back
on the proposition. This is a bad
state of affairs. However, the
authorities are doing what they can
to reach a satisfactory termination
of this problem.
S. C. Holmes, an uncle of Prof,
Holmes of this city, arrived in Cor
vallis last baturday for a few days'
visit with the family of his nephew
tie is fromlwashington D. C, and
for nearly eighteen years was con
nected with toe United States treas
ury department. Some seven years
ago he resigned his position. . Ten
years ago he made a tour of the
Pacific coast from Mexico to Bntii
Columbia. He is now visiting the
Exposition, to which place he will
return within a few days. . When
through with sight-seeing at the
Fair he intends going to Southern
California, where he will pass the
winter. Mr. Holmes says that were
he a young man he should chance
his fortune on the racihe coast.
At the Greffoz store every
thing in the main is yet unchang
ed. Many call for watches and
other articles of jewelry left
there for repairs and in some in
stances there is trouble due to
the impossibility of identification.
It is certainly a bad mess.
Three attachments of property
in the store received service last
Thursday. The first service was
on account ot Thos. Whitehorn,
the second was brought by John
Rickard. Both of these parties
are of Corvallis. The third
paper placed in the hands of
Justice Holgate was in behalf of
Tuthill, a Portland house.
We are informed that these
claims aggregate $500 or more.
As to the value of the stock in
the store it is a matter of con
jecture in a large measure as we
know of no invpice having been
taken. The estimates of several
people who have been more or
less about the store places the
value of the stock remaining at
frm $500 to $1000. The pre
vailing opinion favors the lesser
sum. From any way one looks
at this matter it is deplorable.

Independence Wednesday m
little 30-foot boat that skimmed
over the water like a duck. A
Ohorse power superior engine
was used and the boat was sent
along by a stern propeller. The
boat had 28 feet seating capacity
and before leaving Corvallis. Mr,
Kemp stated he had pulled
22 passengers up stream with
greater speed than the boat could
make empty. It Has a canvas
cover and presents a neat appear
ance. The craft was taken to
ortland to learn if there is a de
tnand for it on the river or Guild's
Lake during the Fair. If not, it
will be brought back up the river
and put on the run between Sa
em and Independence.
Roy Raber, who is interested in
making a good exhibit for Benton
county, came up from Portland,
Sunday. He will remain here
day or two yet gathering fruit and
other material for the exhibit. He
bays that at present our display is
not what it should be, but he is
hopeful that in the course of
couple of weeks it will be a" credit
to the county.
Mrs. Murray, of this city, has
just received a letter from her son,
A matter that is being discussed
to some extent and bids fair to b
come 01 considerable interest is
power of some sort to propel the
ferry across the Willamette river at
this city. IN 0 fault is found with
the ferryman, nor anyone else, for
the condition, but it is claimed that
when one depends upon the ele
ments in a cas of tbis kind they
are not insured good service. For
instance if the wind is from the
north it is almost impossible to cross
the stream . : According to present
Leslie, who is now in charge of the 1 conditions, the ferry is claimed to
construction work on a large build
. ing to be used for a parochial school
at Ashley, Pa. Hereon writes that
he has just been awarded a scholar
ship in the University "of Pennsyl
vania for the year 191)5-6. His at
tainments made it possible for him
to enter the " Junior year at this
great university. He will study
. architecture, designing and kindred
arts. Leslie has certainly mada a
mne fir hi ia self.
Corvallis 7, Siletz 6.
When amateur baseball boys
hold down a nine inning game to
tne score of 7 to 6, spectators
generally get the worth of their
money. Our Corvallis ball-toss-
ers went over to Mewport yester

Toledo and Alsea, and the result
proved that our boys can put up
a good article of baseball.
One week ago last Sunday the
Siletz team won from Corvallis
in a game at Toledo by a score of
9 to ,8. The third and deciding
game will be pulled off m Cor
valiis, provided enough 25 cent
tickets can be sold around town
